**I Got a Soul Solo**
My very first ever soul
solo. Don't know if I can pull it off, though, because I don't think I got enough soul in me.
Wanna know what compliments I got?
"Wow. That was nice."
"That's good, man."
"Put in more feelings." (This one is not so a compliment)
I'm just too aware of my tone and pitch to feel the song. I think I can do better next time.send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org

**This Could Be Bad**
I'm sleeping an hour later than my usual bedtime. I'm also waking up an hour later. Not that it's a big problem. What scares me is that I'm not awakened by my alarm. I don't hear it.
Is this bad?send comments to email@example.com

**What A Surprise**
Got a call from Chun today.
From Australia, specifically Adelaide.
Really nice of him. He said he only called home, his aunty, and me. He sms-ed everyone else. I'm so touched...*sob sob*
Yeah right. He called me because I don't have a handphone lah
Still, it was nice to hear that blur voice again.send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org

**It Went Quite Well**
Yesterday was my first EVER
orchestra practice. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Actually, the only bad thing was my -- cough cough -- incompetence.
Made friends with Wendy, some Form 6 girl, who is very experienced. I think that if I get friendly the other musicians, I'll feel less intimidated by them. Kinda worked. She told me that I'd get better, since it is my first time anyway.
I just gotta practise my pieces. Real hard.send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org

**Ever Felt Like This?**
If your answer is "all the time" after reading this post, please don't shoutbox it. I don't need to hear about it. Tell me something happy, okay?
I used to feel like I didn't belong in my group of friends. Sure, we look so close and all, but there are subgroups in this group. I don't quite fit in any of these subgroups. If these subgroups got together, I'd be left alone. I'd try to squeeze in, but it's like trying to fit a square in a circle (or is it a circle in a square?).
I felt I was forgotten whenever the guys did something without me (and they did that a lot). Honestly, I still do. I felt like I was *just* a friend.
No one important.
No one significant.
No one who would feel hurt if he was left out.
Did I say I *used too*? Maybe I still do. I tried so hard to get rid of this real feeling long ago. It just caught up with me today.send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org

**You'll Never Guess what I Found in My Drink**
You might, but it'll be a lucky guess.
I had lunch with Chun yesterday at Central Park. I got myself a drink (and those who know me so well, you got it-- milo peng). After I finished eating salad chicken rice :), I moved on to my drink, which I drank really fast.
It wasn't until there was a bit of milo left when I looked into the cup. I gasped. And what did I find in there??? A cockroach.
Yes, you read it right: a cockroach. Fortunately it was just a baby one. A dead one. A mature one would have made me puke. Still, it made me feel really sick. Chun got sick too after I told him.
It's a good thing I looked into the cup when I did. God knows that I could have consumed the cockroach...send comments to email@example.com

I had dinner last night at Pr Francis' house with some Youth. It was an appreciation dinner for working ever so hard for the Youth Festival program.
So anyway, when the dinner was over, we all went home (duh). I got in my jeep and then Pr Francis' wife came over and looked at me. Then, she asked me whether I "got license or not" and I was like "ya".
Then, she went on to say:
"You look like a kid driving."

**Not Too Bad a Day**
Was going to ponteng
midweek worship tonite (I know, I'm evil >:D depriving the church of accompaniment music). Initially, some friends planned to watch a movie tonite, but it seems that most of them can't make it =
Not too bad for me.
I missed the American Idol at 4pm today. The stupid rain clouds blocked(?) the "astro waves". As I'm not going out tonite, I can watch the replay at 8pm. Plus, my dad's not here, so there'll be no one watching the news at 8pm. Nyah nyah nyah!
Not too bad for me :)send comments to email@example.com

Hahah! Orchestra practice has been moved up to a later date!!! Hahah!
This lets me:
- Have more time to do some last-minute practice
- Thicken my skin
- Lament over the thought of playing with professionals
- Make believe that I will get to sit beside Jessica and to share a file with her
- Wipe my violin and clean out my case
- Battle out with Lorraine on the subject of who's got the worst of luck: she with the solo or me with the profs
- Have my nails cut
- Find a suitable file in a nice colour...
- Think over my decision to join the orchestra
- Breathe a little easier
Sure, the money's good. That's my (perhaps) only motivation to go on with it.send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org

**Stuff I Did**
I got my hair colour lightened! It is a more visible brown, not light brown.
Chun came back from Canada a few days ago, and honestly, I wasn't quite thrilled as I expected I'd be. I got used to the absence of my ex-classmates. But I'm happy that he's back, cuz tomorrow night can go lepak
Yesterday, I bathed my cat solo
for the first time. It was my aunty, who is suffering from the cold in Switzerland, that bathed my cat. I just assisted. Surprisingly, my cat was very cooperative. It just sat down while I scrubed it up.
Sunday is the day I dread. For the first time in my life, I will be joining an orchestra. I'm so freaked out cuz the music pieces are tough. Not only that, there will be professionals around. I mean, if I screw up, they would hear it and perhaps judge my performance...
So you see, my life is not that exciting. Well, unless you consider me picking up Warcraft 3 exciting.send comments to email@example.com
